Curran Tax Service is nestled in downtown Duluth MN in the Intrepid Building at 230 E Superior Street. The business has its roots of 25 years in Tom’s hometown where he saw a need for an honest and approachable service for farmers and their families. Tom brought that mentality to Duluth when he arrived in 2000 and opened his practice to include individuals, families, and businesses. In 2006, his son Abe joined the practice, followed by Jill in 2010, and Devin in 2011. Our focus hasn't changed from that of Tom’s original hometown roots as we continue to provide a friendly and down-to-earth approach in the Northland for tax preparation, planning and filing.
TOM CURRAN has called Duluth his home since 2000. He and his wife, Linda, have raised two children, Molly and Abe. Tom became an Enrolled Agent in 1991 by passing a two day IRS exam. Being an Enrolled Agent allows Tom to represent people before the IRS.
He takes pride in providing up-to-date, paperless tax preparation along with a “kitchen-table” friendliness that will respectfully and professionally meet all your tax prep needs.
Tom has been a special education teacher, a farmer, and remains a life-long reader, frequent traveler, and news-junkie. Tom also holds part time office hours in Waseca, MN.
ABE CURRAN has been working in the tax office since 2006. He moved home from Chicago to help his father's growing business. Abe enjoys the process of tax preparation and the people he gets to meet in this work. In 2012 he passed the test to become a Registered Tax Return Preparer (RTRP).
He is looking forward to seeing everyone this season, catching up, and helping to get those returns filed correctly and on time.
When not working in the office he enjoys playing music (which he writes), acting, and getting outside for any adventure.
JILL POSPISIL joined the Curran team in January 2010. As an EA (Enrolled Agent) and RTRP (Registered Tax Return Preparer), she prepares personal and business tax returns, and offers small business support.
Jill enjoys working with people from all walks of life and helping them clearly understand their taxes. Having been self-employed much of her life, she has a great appreciation for the entrepreneurial spirit.
Outside of the office you’ll find Jill on stage as a member of the Duluth-Superior Symphony Orchestra, in her garden, or volunteering at her children’s school. She lives in Duluth with her husband and two children.
DEVIN MCKINNON started working at Curran Tax Service in 2011 to answer the phones. He has discovered a passion for taxes and bookkeeping that he ascribes to his grandfather who was a CPA. Besides working at Curran Tax Service, McKinnon performs with Wise Fool Shakespeare and hosts a trivia night at Pizza Luce. McKinnon has one son and has lived in Duluth most of his life.
JERREE SMALL joined the Curran team in January 2014, helping with scheduling and assorted office support. When she's not at Curran, she's a performing musician and songwriter.
